Disclaimer: the next couple of posts will attempt to delve into the complicated world created by the intersection of Church and Academia.
I have not posted in a while, mainly because I have been busy with my BA Thesis (now completed…if anyone is curious the title was “The Life and After-Life of Canonical Psalmody: The Role of Psalm 69 in the Establishment of Eschatological Group-Boundaries in the Qumran Community and the Pauline Ekklēsiai” and I had a blast writing it, ergo lack of blogging). I am, however, looking forward to reacquainting myself with my own blog, and as a step in that direction I have decided to spend some time tackling this issue – the intersection between Church and Academia – which I’ve always had a lot of opinions about but not necessarily the courage to let them spill. The anonymity of internet identity has provided me with that courage. So here goes – brace yourselves. I know I am.
Note: I am not going to preface the blog-series with a disclaimer of which religious institution I belong to or how religious I am on some sort of postmodern scale of nonchalance. You’ll simply have to piece it together as I go. May the odds be ever in your favour!
